Soulful dynamite!
For some years I´ve been a great fan of Sofies music. The combination of the unusual dulcimer, lap steel, harmonica, footstomping and soulful voice is quite unique! I met Sofie at one of her two concerts in her native town Ludvika, Sweden lately, and we became very good friends. She´s an awesome person as well! I must say this album is something extra. Her own material got brilliant lyrics and some of the songs are beyond beauty, e.g. "Simplicity Chased Trouble away", "Human Every Day" and "Peace Lovin´You". Nothing but masterpieces! Then we have this "Outside the City"... The clean guitar beat together with harmonica and Sofies soulful, sexy voice is dynamite! And must be considered as the blues song of the year, if you ask me! Don´t miss this one folks!!!
